Andrew, 43 years old, has been engaged in a pig sales business for the past eight years in Kampala.

Pork is a delicacy liked by many people in and around Kampala. As a result, Andrew has many buyers for his pigs.

Andrew says he will use this loan to purchase more pigs to resell.

Additional Information

This is a Group Loan

In a group loan, each member of the group receives an individual loan but is part of a larger group of individuals. The group is there to provide support to the members and to provide a system of peer pressure, but groups may or may not be formally bound by a group guarantee. In cases where there is a group guarantee, members of the group are responsible for paying back the loans of their fellow group members in the case of delinquency or default.

Kiva's Field Partners typically feature one borrower from a group. The loan description, sector, and other attributes for a group loan profile are determined by the featured borrower's loan. The other members of the group are not required to use their loans for the same purpose.
